For the past three decades, diverse digital writing practices have been published, documented, anthologized, curated, and shaped into a corpus known widely as electronic (or digital) literature. As a result, a canon of electronic literature is starting to emerge as critical writing and teaching resources direct attention to particular well known works.  I ♥ E-Poetry is interested in expanding the canon by reviewing works that have received little or no critical attention, but also by discovering e-poetry in unexpected spaces, such as videogames, video and meme sharing sites, social netwoks, and other places where the poetic function of digital language shines brightly.

I ♥ E-Poetry seeks entries on this unexpected e-poetry, especially if the creator(s) didn’t intend it as poetry. The entries must follow the established guidelines and will be reviewed as described therein. The call will remain open until we have discovered all the poetic possibilities of language in digital environments.

Share the ♥.
